Richmond street scene: Big Bird

It’s four days past Halloween, and some people don’t want to give up their costumes.

Take, for example, the panhandler with a guitar on Main Street in downtown Richmond today. He was strumming and singing…while wearing a Big Bird head. Yes, Big Bird, the big yellow character from “Sesame Street.”

I walked by and, I promise this is true, he was playing “Free Bird” by Lynyrd Skynyrd.
